Alcami Launches New Rapid Sterility Testing Services

Durham, NC (USA) – October 8, 2019 – Alcami Corporation, a leading provider of fully-integrated custom end-to-end solutions for the pharmaceutical and biologics industries, today announced the launch of its new rapid sterility offering, a service that leverages cutting-edge microbiological testing technology to deliver significantly faster testing results to clients. Alcami invested in the Milliflex® Rapid System for the rapid sterility test, which uses adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence for detection of microorganisms after five days.

ON-DEMAND WEBINAR: Alcami Introduces Rapid Sterility

Rapid sterility is an alternative test method to the US Pharmacopeia (USP) General Chapter <71>, Ph.Eur. 2.6.1, and JP 4.06 sterility tests that allows for shorter incubation periods and faster results. Alcami is launching rapid sterility via the Milliflex® Rapid System, which uses adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence for detection of microorganisms after five days. A fully comprehensive comparability study verifies adherence to USP/Ph.Eur. requirements for alternative microbiological methods and demonstrates that rapid sterility is a reliable alternative to the reference method.

In this webinar, Alcami’s rapid sterility expert, Stacey Ramsey, will introduce Alcami’s new rapid sterility platform and provide information for understanding implementation requirements. Stacey will also discuss the advantages of the rapid sterility platform as it compares to USP <71>.

Editorial: The Changing R&D Landscape

Dr. Imran Ahmed, Head of Formulation Development at Alcami, recently published an article in Pharma Tech Outlook. The article, The Changing R&D Landscape: Emerging Technology Needs and Value Proposition for Strategic Partnerships with Contract Development and Manufacturing Organizations (CDMOs), explains that as a result of pharmaceutical products becoming increasingly complex, new regulatory and manufacturing challenges are on the rise.

Excerpt from Ahmed: "The pharmaceutical product landscape is rapidly and fundamentally changing with profound impact on research and development strategy and technology needs. After a precipitous fall in new drug approvals during the last two decade of the 20th century, there has been a gradual recovery going into the second decade of the 21st century."

SCIENTIST SPOTLIGHT: September 2019

Name: Arne Van Mol

Alcami Site: Weert, Netherlands

What is your role? 
I am a process engineer at the Alcami site in Weert, Netherlands. My role is to scale up manufacturing activities in accordance with environmental, health and safety (EH&S) and current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) requirements.

How long have you been with Alcami?
My first experience with Alcami was during my internship in 2017. I had the pleasure of supporting the scale up of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) starting from a 2L reactor (150 grams of API) to a 400L reactor (36 kilograms of API).

I rejoined the Alcami team in November 2018 as a full-time employee.

What is the most rewarding part of your job? 
Working closely with R&D chemists in order to solve scale up obstacles and technical issues, such as emulsified phase separations or poor conversions, is the most satisfying part of the job.
